It's a truism that half of any video or film production is the sound track. Jay Rose writes clearly and concisely on how to make the audio portion of your video production its best. I strongly recommend this and his follow-up title, Audio Postproduction for Digital Video. Also, keep up-to-date on audio-for-video by reading his fine column in DV magazine.Was this review helpful?

Jay Rose has put together an excellent resource for anyone working with audio, espcecially for those who are working with video or editing. With audio being such a tricky science unto itself, this book is a terrific reference with those who are accomplished with audio production as well as an invaluable tool for those who may be skilled in other areas of video production, but may be new to audio production. This book explains all the terms and jargon, expains audio and sound theory, answers questions about common problems and provides specific technical assistance with cleaning up bad audio, fixing problems, how to set up mics (& what type to use for what), planning, getting good sound to start, editing and sweetening audio on the computer, mixing, effects, etc... Lots of tips and techniques. Great book from an experienced working professional. You won't be disappointed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
